Explore Science through Carleton’s popular Science Cafe series! All are welcome at these entertaining and informative public presentations. The next cafe features Shawna Masson discussing ethical birding!

Abstract: Bird watching comes with a code of ethics enthusiasts abide by. These practices help us protect the pastime we love so dearly. With bird watching these rules mean so much more, as they help protect the birds and their natural ecosystems. Human presence can be very intrusive and destructive to wildlife without proper precautions. What safeguards can birders use to ensure the continued enjoyment of bird watching? In this presentation we will discuss guidelines to avoid unintentionally disturbing or harming our feather friends. Even as an experienced birder, we can be unknowingly disturbing the wildlife we aim to conserve.
